Department of Analytic Philosophy

Characteristics

The Department of Analytic Philosophy focuses on the logical, epistemological, semantical, and metaphysical analysis of fiction on one side, on hyperintesionality and the logic of responsibility, on the other. Therefore, the department’s research includes both theoretical research in analytic philosophy as well as its practical applicability. We offer the following Ph.D. topics: Problem of Grasping of Hyperintensional Language Phenomena; Formal Analysis of Impossible Objects; Formal Analysis of Fictional Discourse; and Transparent Intensional Logic: Theoretical Development and Application.

PhD study topics for the academic year 2022/2023

Tutor: Mgr. Miloš Kosterec, PhD.

Problem of grasping of hyperintensional language phenomena

Study program: 2.1.2. systematic philosophy * Study form: fuli-time/external * Faculty: Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava
Annotation:
The existence of the hyperintensional contexts is a universally accepted fact. There are various philosophical (logical, semantical) theories of the hyperintensional phenomena and contexts developed within the field of the analytic philosophy and the philosophical logic. The aim is to argumentatively reason for the precedence of one of the existing theories or argumentatively defend a creation of an original theory accompanied with the creation of it.

Formal analysis of impossible objects

Study program: 2.1.2. systematic philosophy * Study form: full-time/external * Faculty: Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava
Annotation:
The need to discern among various equivalent propositions led to the development of various theories. Among them, a strong position currently holds the class of theories developed with the use of so-called impossible objects. The aim is to analyse the concepts of impossible objects and argue whether its use has relevant merits.

Formal analysis of fictional discourse

Study program: 2.1.2. systematic philosophy * Study form: full-time/external * Faculty: Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava
Annotation:
The analysis of the fictional contexts belongs among the most problematic within the field of the analytic philosophy. For example, the status of the names used in fiction as well as the truth values of propositions within fiction are problematic. The aim is research into the selected philosophical, semantical and logical aspects of the fictional contexts.

Transparent Intensional Logic: theoretical development and application

Study program: 2.1.2. systematic philosophy * Study form: full-time/external * Faculty: Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava
Annotation:
Transparent Intensional Logic is currently undergoing a lively development. The applications of the system in the various philosophical discussions within the field of analytic philosophy are spreading. The aim is to research into theoretical properties of the system as well as an application of the system in solving some of the important philosophical problems.

Data as a currency - Data justice

Study program: 2.1.2. systematic philosophy * Study form: full-time/external * Faculty: Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava
Annotation:
Data justice concerns the fact that even though the data of users is often used for payment, they usually do not notice the fact. Data present possibly the most valuable commodity. The aim is to investigate the ways this commodity is managed, regulated, and handled with a particular interest in the role informatic technologies plays within the problematics.
